Desi lydic’s ‘awkward’ pals turn out for her ‘daily show’ debut

Desi Lydic nailed her “Daily Show” debut last night — thanks to plenty of support from her “Awkward” crew.

As the woman behind Val Marks taped her first segment as a correspondent for the show — which just premiered this week with new host Trevor Noah — her MTV co-stars Jillian Rose Reed (aka Tamara), Brett Davern (aka Jake), and Barret Swatek (aka Aunt Ally, you little b!%@#) were in attendance to cheer her on.

Before the show got rolling, the group took some backstage shots to share with fans on Instagram, officially entering the competition for ultimate #squadgoals:

We wonder what advice Ms. Marks would have for a friend starting a new gig. If it were, “Look fleek and have the coolest people around you,” then they basically nailed it:

Pre-show, Brett snapped a selfie of the Three Musketeers to capture just how excited they were:

Meanwhile, Molly Tarlov couldn’t make it to the taping but sent her good vibes via the Twitterverse, posting, “Can’t wait to see our very own @desilydic’s debut on #thedailyshow in five minutes!!!” Aww guys, the love is palpable.

If you’re as hyped about Lydic’s debut as her co-stars, you can check out the hilarious sketch below. In it, Noah jokes that the terrorist group ISIS has started a QVC-like network (hosted by Lydic and comedian Hasan Minhaj) to sell priceless stolen artifacts. Then don’t forget to catch Lydic and the rest of the “Awkward” bunch every Monday at 9e/6p!
